We hope that you are all well and that you have been having a pleasant week.
In English, Year Four have been creating sentences about their snowman using subordinate and causal conjunctions. In addition, both classes have studied a variety of explanation texts and generated a bank of technical vocabulary to apply across their sentence work for their snowman information leaflet. At the end of the week, the children completed their planning forms and decided which key features they would like to include for each section of their leaflet. We look forward to seeing the published copies available in the school reception at the end of next week!
In Maths, we have been learning about Multiplication and Division. In particular, we have discussed a variety of efficient strategies to use when counting ‘groups’ or ‘lots of’ items, e.g. arrays, bar models, part-part whole drawings, number lines with largest multiples, etc. As the week progressed, Year Four were able to confidently and successfully complete a variety of word problems, carefully interpreting the key vocabulary to decide which mathematical symbol and strategy to use. Well done to both classes for all of the commitment they have shown to the challenge tasks.
On Friday, the children attended an Anti-Bullying assembly as part of their learning for Anti-Bullying week. Each class took part and were given the opportunity to participate as part of an interactive school presentation.
Please remind your children to complete the following homework:
- Spelling slip
- Vocabulary learning
- Sumdog Maths
We hope you all have a relaxing weekend and we very much look forward to seeing you all next week at our parents evenings on Tuesday 26th and Wednesday 27th November 2019.
